Ingredient spotlight:Salicylic acidSalicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that is especially helpful in treating acne because of its ability to penetrate facial oil. As a keratolytic, salicylic acid normalizes skin cell sloughing to soften and lift off stubborn skin cell layers to prevent them from clogging the pore. Salicylic acid reduces the severity of acne, helps keep skin clear by preventing formation of new acne and allows skin to heal. Clarifying Cleanser is uniquely formulated with two types of salicylic acid—a free form that starts treating immediately and an encapsulated form that treats over time. The encapsulation technology consists of multiple salicylic acid molecules inside specially charged microscopic spheres that adhere to skin, providing continuous salicylic acid treatment for hours, even after rinsing.Green teaAntioxidant polyphenols present in green tea act as free radical scavengers that protect cells against environmental damage and help calm and soothe red, inflamed and irritated skin.Active Ingredient:Salicylic Acid (1.5%)Ingredients:Water (Aqua), Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Urea, Yeast Amino Acids, Trehalose, Inositol, Taurine, Betaine, Methyl Gluceth-20, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Butylene Glycol, Cimicifuga Racemosa Root Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Silver Citrate, PEG-150 Distearate, Menthol, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch Octenylsuccinate, Glyceryl Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Polysorbate 80, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Limonene, Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Leaf Oil, Cymbopogon Nardus (Citronella) Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Fragrance (Parfum)
